Hi, I'm Anastasia

Anastasia Arsentyeva

I’m a Russian-Dutch photographer currently based between London and Lisbon.

I’m a writer/director when not taking stills, but I wanted to connect with more directors and work on projects outside of my own realm, so taking stills is the perfect way in which I collaborate with other creatives and participate in delivering their creative vision.

Mostly working on short narrative drama films, primarily in digital formats, but also with analogue and Polaroid photography.

My Bio

I have worked as a freelance photographer on various projects unrelated to film for the past 5 years.

Born in St. Petersburg, Russia, but having grown up in the Netherlands and subsequently living in the UK, I often engages with themes of modern pressures, inter-generational relationships, class guilt and identity in my directorial work.

I’ve recently been working on several BFI, Doc Society and BBC-funded projects. Most notably, I took stills for Alfie Barker’s doc ‘Hanging On’ which won ‘Best of Fest’ and ‘Best Documentary’ at Aesthetica Film Festival last year.

Highlights from Anastasia

Not particularly film related, but what drove me to pursue photography professionally was the public response to my photography exhibition when I was 17. My graduation work was exhibited at St. Catherine’s Church in Eindhoven, The Netherlands, and consisted of portraits of people telling their stories with racist micro-aggressions they have been (or are) subjected to. The church received over 500 visitors a day, so over the course of the month I had an overwhelming amounts of thoughts and messages from people in my leather-bound notebook that was placed at the end of the exhibition.

I’d never display those photos now (I was 17…so this was quite a while back and it was by far not my best work) but it’s definitely a warm memory to look back on. I can for sure say that it gave me the confidence and validation I needed to pursue a creative career.
